amis au fil des ans

just a few good friends, sharing adventures in family, arts, and sometimes heavy machinery

the power to heal

if only i could offer it!  but i am trying to come as close as i can with my newest creation.  i got some saddening news two weeks ago when a dear friend of mine’s 2 year old son was diagnosed with leukemia.  talk about a punch in the gut.  he had a fever one day and the next it is cancer.  when i was told the news, i had this immediate need to do something.  anything.  i just needed to act.  they live in australia so i couldn’t jump in the car and go visit, i couldn’t even really send food.  all the stores are different so gift cards were also tough.  so i prayed, i thought, i cried, and then i sewed.

  

two capes (using the tutorial found here).  the light pink one on the left is for his sister.  she is a rock star too.  his cape is a bright white, which is what i visualize him surrounded by as he fights the cancer.  i have been told that the energy of white light is extremely powerful.  i also sewed an outline of archangel raphael, the archangel of healing, in the lining to keep an eye on my little friend.  speaking of the lining, i chose a super soft white velour for the lining of both.  he has a long battle ahead of him, and i can only hope that this will make him feel even more strong and powerful than he already is.
